We are looking for a talented, passionate Staff Software Engineer to help shape and drive the
future of SoFi's loan underwriting engineering platform. The ideal candidate is hands-on,
articulate and focused engineer, who can help us to develop features and functionality; mentor
others; and extend our application architecture to meet new requirements.
We move quickly and use a core stack of Java / Kotlin / Spring Boot / JPA / Hibernate / Kafka /
Git, but you don't have to be an expert in any of these. Rather, we're looking for engineers that
are humble, hungry and smart and have a strong desire to make a difference in our members
At SoFi, you'll become part of a new kind of finance company whose ambition is to help our

loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a
modern approach to lending and personal finance.
Next we expanded our products and services across loans, wealth management, and insurance.
